  • db.insert([ id,] document [, callback]) Insert (or update) a document with optional id
  • db.destroy(id, rev [, callback]) Delete document with id, revision rev
  • db.get(id [, callback]) Get document by id
  • db.create([callback]) Creates the database if it does not already exist
  • db.check([callback]) Checks for the presence of your selected db
  • db.makeRequest(method[, url, data, callback) Build a manual request to the couch.

All callbacks are of form (err, res) where res is the JSON-parsed response from couch.
